Faith Hunter

Beginning her life-long love affair with yoga in the early 90s, Faith Hunter is a next generation yoga teacher, who blends classic yogic principles and real world personal experiences into an integrated flow that is totally grounded.

She is the creator of Spiritually Fly?, a philosophy that celebrates every moment of life, and uses yoga?s tools of sound, both chanting & music, breath, and movement, in a fresh and modern way to encourage students to embrace their unique flow in life ? on and off the mat. Her passionate and free-spirited teaching style is influenced by her study in Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Kundalini.

Faith Hunter also owns Embrace Yoga DC, yoga training & community center located in Adams Morgan ? a multicultural nest of Washington DC. Both 200 and 500 level yoga certifications are offered. Always eager to learn, explore, and share, Faith is an inspiring and generous mentor to yoga practitioners of all skill levels.

A talented yoga teacher & lifestylelist, sprinkled with a dash of Louisiana charm, Faith Hunter first began yoga as a way to cope as her beloved brother Michael was dying from a complication related to AIDS. Through meditation and mindfulness Faith was able to release her fears and experience an awakening from within. From that day forward, she committed herself to sharing these practices with the world.

Today, Faith Hunter is a global yoga teacher with a passion for beauty, movement, love, and soul freedom. A favorite choice for mass yoga gatherings, Faith has taught at yoga at the Great Lawn, the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington DC, and The White House Easter Egg Roll.

    I really enjoyed this class.... I was able to follow the instructions and obtain real release rather than being stressed about keeping up with frequent changes in the poses.... I loved a few breaths in each of the poses... Challenging but not overwhealming
